Interviews by Charmaine Mckissock
Mondays 10am repeated 2pm Saturdays & will be on Listen again
Over the next two weeks, Charmaine McKissock talks to Heather Purdey, who is a Director of the Community Interest Company which runs Colne Radio www.colneradio.com in Wivenhoe. Heather talks about how being the daughter of Austrian refugees, who settled in the UK in the 1930’s, has had a lasting influence on her. She recounts with vigour and wit how a very low boredom threshold has led to her lifelong career in journalism and involvement in myriad activities, including being Lady Mayoress of Wivenhoe. Now a step-granny, she travels extensively and is involved in radio consultancy and training in the UK and overseas.
